Tunay na Pilipino


Wala sa damit, wala sa mukha
Kundi nasa puso't gawa
Tunay na Pilipino masipag at matiyaga
Handang tumulong sa kanyang kapwa

Ang mga Pilipino,
Matapang at Matalino
Mapagmahal sa sariling bansa
Mabait at maaasahan ng iba

Mahilig sa mga pagkain
Matamis man o maasim
Inaalagaan ang kalikasan
Para sa ating kinabukasan

Tunay na Pilipino sa isip at gawa
Patuloy ito sa buhay na ginhawa
Maging mabait o masungit man
Nagmamahal parin sa sariling bayan

Mga batang mag-aaral
Disiplina ang ipinapairal
Hirap ang dinaranasan
Para sa magandang kinabukasan


Ako'y isang Pilipino, masipag at magiting
Kapag ako'y hamunin, lagot ay mararating
Tunay na Pilipino masarap maging
Masipag, matiyaga at matulungin
